Artists of Algonquin: Contemporary Artists Wild with Passion

Minimize

Bracebridge On   ----   May 10, 2012  ---  The Artists of Algonquin: Contemporary Artists Wild with Passion, by Andrea Hillo , publisher of The Artists of AlgonquinElke Scholz, MA, EXAT Andrea Hillo , publisher of The Artists of Algonquin, a beautiful 11” x 12” hardcover book featuring 31 area artists, 71 pages, had a Bracebridge book launch at Elke Scholz's Studio, featuring  local artists, Carole Ann Thur, David Dawson, Elke Scholz, and Wendy Wallace and their art pieces from the book.

 Andrea was inspired by the McMichael Collection and realized that there are many artists that are alive that love and paint the beauty of Algonquin Park.
All the artists represented live within one hour of the park.
 
Here are some pictures of Saturday’s book Launch! We didn’t get all our gardening done, ( is it ever done?) however I was so happy to host this great event on this sunny, almost bug free day.
It was a wonderful success.

The Artists of Algonquin David Friesen, Riverwalk Restaurant, wowed us with his amazing culinary skills! The tastes of fresh herbs, roasted vegetables and organic eggs delighted our palettes. The organic coffee by Diesel House Coffee Roasters was so popular we were making more! Thank you so much for supporting us and Andrea’s accomplishment in this project, The Artists of Algonquin!

Mayor Graydon Smith honoured us with genuine words that warmed our hearts.
Dull scissors and sawing the red ribbon added some fun and humour. Over 90 people attended to view art by published artists, Carole Ann Thur, David Dawson, Elke Scholz, and Wendy Wallace and to buy books.

The publisher has done an amazing job with colour accuracy and quality. Robert Bateman has contributed images as well an endorsement of this amazing collection. Foreward by Robert Bateman, “ ...it is heartwarming to find a group of artists that have a sense of place. It is good to see a new generation put its heart and talent into this place that has stirred so many hearts.”
